Title: RE: Excavation Bracing

Not long ago, I did a search for available soil-nailing software and concluded that there is a grand total of one program available in North America.  It is Goldnail 3.11, a 16-bit Windows program that currently appears to be used by most large civil engineering firms and state DOTs.  We recently bought the program, and I believe that the cost was about $1000.  If you are interested, contact the authors at:

Now then, Golder appears to have a monopoly on soil-nailing software.  Has anyone told the U.S. Department of Justice?
